    leepers, a picture is worth a 1000 words... the carrots are cut into coins, same way as the celery, and the fennel is cut into strips. Also, not to be devil's advocate, but Pure distilled water is not easily obtained because CO2 in the air around us mixes, or dissolves, in the water, making it somewhat acidic. The pH of distilled water is between 5.6 and 7". Lemons btw are alklaline. See this food list for more info - http://www.trans4mind.com/nutrition/pH.html

    What are crosswise?....shrimp? I am surprised that mushrooms are not mentioned/added (without shrimp?) for/in this salad, because mushrooms are very important for the immune system. It is interesting that the guest bespeaks the alkaline content of the salad and then makes a lemon/olive oil dressing:both of which are acidic, I believe. Also, I believe it is vital to drink PURE water.
